Security forces in Turkey have raised the number of detained suspects linked to the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group to nearly 750 people, says the Interior Ministry.

In a statement published on Monday, the ministry announced that Turkish anti-terrorism police had detained 748 suspects in the initial phase of nationwide operations in 29 provinces over the weekend.

Turkish police seized numerous documents, digital materials, two guns, four rifles and ammunition in the operations, the statement said.

Meanwhile, the state-run Anadolu news agency put the number of detained suspects at 763.

The arrests come over a month after a gunman on New Year’s Eve went on a shooting spree inside an Istanbul nightclub, killing 39 people, mostly foreigners. Daesh claimed responsibility for the massacre.
